Demi Lovato is officially in Simon Cowell’s world and has signed her deal to be a judge on the nest season of The X factor USA. Demi will be in NYC to maximize the hype surrounding the show by appearing at the FOX Up Fronts Monday – supposedly joining Britney Spears who will also be a judge on the show.
While it is understandable that Simon wants to hire the hottest stars available one has to wonder whether these two singers fit the bill. Both Britney and Demi have a history of very serious mental illness requiring hospitalization and rehabilitation. Can they handle the pressure they will face on the show?
Last week Demi was out partying until 2 am and many question whether she has already fallen off the wagon. Is Simon hiring these stars in the hope that the TV audience will be huge because of their talent? Or has he hired them for the potential spectacle they offer? Does Simon want to see one or both members of the crazy train comprised of Britney and Demi crash and burn?
TMZ has the exclusive:
Demi Lovato has officially signed her deal and will be a judge on the next season of “The X Factor” … TMZ has learned.
